Testing Day in the name of AI

Testingday 2024

This year's ASQF Testing Day in Wiesbaden was also dedicated to the ever-present topic of AI. Under the motto "Testing of and with AI - challenges and practical applications", we met with the members of the ASQF Expert Network in Wiesbaden on Tuesday to discuss current trends and developments in the context of interesting presentations and open discussion rounds. Dr. Runze's presentation on the use of AI tools in quality assurance was particularly interesting. The conclusion of the day was: AI will soon be everywhere, including in testing!

F+S After Work

After a long and hot summer's day, there's nothing better than a relaxed after-work session with a refreshing cocktail or a cold beer! Our IT experts gathered at the Cargo Beachclub in Limburg last night to enjoy the end of the working day together and catch up.

Between inspiring conversations about the latest tech trends, they simply relaxed and unwinded on the banks of the River Lahn.

This not only strengthened their sense of togetherness, but also gave them new ideas and perspectives.Moments like these are priceless and show that a strong team is also important outside the office. Here's to many more evenings together and creative ideas!AfterWork CargoBeach 20240626

New Automotive Security Engineers

TUEV NORDThe training of our employees in the area of cybersecurity continues to progress:

Last week, 4 F+S employees successfully took part in an automotive cybersecurity training course. The focus of the training was on familiarising themselves with the ISO/SAE 21434 security standard and understanding its provisions, background and requirements.

In the intensive 3-day training, our employees gained knowledge on how to develop cybersecurity requirements in the automotive environment, especially against the background of ISO/SAE 21434, the homologation requirements of the UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) and with references to functional safety (ISO 26262) and the cybersecurity add-on to Automotive SPICE®. The excellent speaker Sergej Weber presented numerous practical examples and allowed the participants to deepen their knowledge through exercises.

Following the training, all participants were able to successfully demonstrate the knowledge they had gained the next day in an examination supervised by TÜV Nord. We now have 4 newly qualified Automotive Cybersecurity Engineers (ISO/SAE 21434) in our company.

Congratulations to the participants!

Consultants certified for Automotive SPICE® Cybersecurity

SPICE CybersecurityAt the beginning of February, six of our F+S consultants were certified for the Automotive SPICE® Cybersecurity extension. This additional qualification makes it possible to carry out cybersecurity assessments. The content of the three packed training days was very interesting. Dr Richard Messnarz, an accredited VDA-QMC trainer and cybersecurity expert, imparted a lot of relevant practical knowledge.

Congratulations Joachim, Johannes, Felix, Rainer, Pascal and Michael!

ASQF Quality Night with AI focus

KI Deep Learning

On July 18, F+S was a guest at the 5th ASQF Quality Night "Artificial Intelligence: Perspectives" in Munich. More than 60 participants discussed the topics AI and software testing. We were particularly interested in the presentation on AI-supported requirement analysis, requirement engineering and assignment to system domains. A presentation on Functional Safety in the medical industry showed how important the structured management of data with labels, traces and reviews is in the AI context. Other talks presented potential AI-based test setups and highlighted ethical issues in AI development. It was a successful event that gave us inspiring insights into the AI context.
